Hey guys! I feel like last year even though I said I wanted to tackle my TBR, I mostly just ended up ignoring it but this year I want that to be different. I think if I actually look at the books that are on there, it might actually spur me on to read some of them! So today I am looking at the top ten highest rating books that are currently on my TBR, according to Goodreads. Let’s get into it!
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas (Rating 4.66): I actually forgot this was on my TBR I thought I’d removed it, whoops. I’m not even surprised that it’s the highest rated book because the amount of people I’ve seen and heard people raving about this book is insane. Unfortunately I didn’t feel the same and DNF’ed it when I was about halfway through. I do want to give it another try but I’m struggling to motivate myself to pick it up again.
Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo (Rating 4.61): This book is just taunting me now. I will admit though that I am surprised that it’s the second highest rated book. I know Leigh Bardugo is an amazing author but I thought it’d be a bit lower down on my list. I want to read this before I read King of Scars so trust me when I say I will read this!
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas (Rating 4.52): I would have been disappointed if such an influential and moving book like this wasn’t in the top five. Contemporary isn’t really my thing so I’m not sure how I’ll feel about this one but given how significant the events are, I knew I couldn’t just let it pass me by. It’s one of those books that you have to read.
Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff (Rating 4.57): I’ve only read Nevernight and whilst I wasn’t a fan at the beginning, I was definitely won over by the end and I loved how incredibly dark the story got! It looks like the second book will be just as gruesome and I’m here for it!
Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman (Rating 4.51): I haven’t even read Scythe yet but I’m stoked that the second book has such a high rating, although I have heard this series gets better with each book. I thought this series had such an interesting concept and I think it’s absolutely terrifying that humans have that much power.
A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas (Rating 4.48): All I have to say is that the world really wants be to read this darn series. I’m surprised it’s not higher up though.
Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor (Rating 4.47): Interesting. I’m really surprised that the sequel beat the first book because I’ve heard this one isn’t as good as Strange the Dreamer. Of course I haven’t read either of them yet so I can’t voice my own opinion but hopefully this year I’ll be able to.
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo: I wish I liked this book as much as everyone else because it would certainly make it easier when it comes to rereading it!
Crownbreaker by Sebastien de Castell (Rating 4.45): Aw yeah! This has made my night. I love this series so much and to see that the last book receive such a high rating, I’m honestly so pleased for Sebastien. If you haven’t read this series I highly recommend it. It focuses on an ordinary boy trying to survive in a world filled with magic and spellcasters. It’s so refreshing to see the main character be so ordinary rather than the most powerful person in the world. I still need to finish this series but this has definitely spurred me on!
Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater (4.43): Not even surprised to see Call Down the Hawk make the list (it just beat The Language of Thorns). I loved The Raven Cycle so much and I was really excited when Maggie announced that Ronan would have his own trilogy because he was by far the most interesting character and I really wanted to learn more about his dreams and his ability. I can’t wait to read this!
Well there we have my top ten highest rating books and I’m definitely surprised by some of the entrants. These are all pretty popular books so I’m interested to see what my lowest rated ones are – maybe I can post about that next week? What are some of the highest rated books on your TBR? Feel free to leave a comment below. I hope you enjoyed this post and thank you so much for reading!
